According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross will be calling a match at WrestleMania 33. Ross has been removed from the WWE Universe for almost four years now, since being fired from hosting a 2013 SummerSlam panel. Since being let go, he had moved on to calling matches for New Japan Pro Wrestling in 2015.
It’s been reported that Ross will be a guest announcer for one of the three main matches at WrestleMania, though it is still unclear which one he will help call. He’s also expected to become a part of future WWE programs after his guest appearance at WrestleMania, which could be just the beginning of his return to the WWE.
This scheduling has apparently been set in place for weeks now, which could explain Ross’ sudden return, since it was just earlier this month that his wife, Jan, passed away after getting in a motorcycle accident. It would make sense for the Sooner to look towards the WWE for emotional support, or at least a reason to stay busy, while grieving over the death of wife.
So, which match would Ross be calling exactly? Well, seeing as he is a Hall of Famer, he will most likely call one of the three main events for WrestleMania 33. This could mean Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt, or Roman Reigns vs. The Undertaker.
Chances are, Ross will be calling the Reigns vs. Undertaker match. This match is expected to be the main event of the three big matches, since rumors have been flying around about the Undertaker’s health and age making Sunday’s match his last. Nothing has been confirmed. These are just speculations of the WWE universe, but one must look at the situation logically and assume the dead man’s retirement will be coming “Sooner” (is that a sign or coincidental word play?) rather than later.
There’s also the possibility of Ross calling the Goldberg Vs. Lesnar fight, since it was the first match announced for WrestleMania 33 and his commentary could give it that “bigger fight feel.”
Regardless of what match he’ll call, WWE fans should be excited to hear Jim Ross’ voice call a match at least one more time.
